Personality & Traits

General Overview Matthew Plumeri is a very likeable guy. He is good natured, he is curious and loves to learn. He is passionate about meeting and interacting with alien cultures and hopes one day to be on a first contact mission. He loves to laugh and enjoys a good joke. When it comes to work, he is very professional and he knows his history. He has a special fascination and love for ancient civilizations. That is probably because he comes from a planet that is rich with alien history. He was born on Earth in Trento, Italy, and when he was 3 months old his parents moved and became Federation colonists. He is a ½ Human and ½ Fontalan colonist from Earth to the planet Fontalis in the Barratae star cluster. He learned about and loved the rich history of his new home and considers himself a citizen of them both.
Strengths STRENGTHS: Matt is a strong willed guy. He is clear and decisive but not arrogant. He can think clearly and logically and is very loyal to his friends. He is smart and curious and inquisitive by nature. He is a fun person to be around and everyone feels at ease around him. He has a great smile.
Weaknesses WEAKNESSES: He doesn’t like disorganization and that can often trigger a flash of rage. Sometimes, he wears his emotions on his sleeve and he has to work very hard on that. Sometimes, people see that duplicity in him and think he is “two-faced”. Professional and courteous to some and then angry and short-tempered with friends. It really is not being duplicitous - it really is about him being confident enough to not be “always on” with his friends.
Ambitions AMBITIONS: He really want to be on a first contact mission one of these days. He also wants to one day teach at the University of Serse back on Fontalis. He wants to share the intrigue and passion that is History.

Personal History Matthew Thomas Plumeri, was born in the city of Trento, Italy on Earth on October 22, 2363. His father, Carl Plumeri married his mother, a Fontalan native and her name is Yaniris. They travelled to Earth, when Yaniris was pregnant, so that when Matthew was born he would be a naturalized Federation citizen with all of the rights and privileges. Fontalis, is a provisional member world and so a few months after he was born Carl and Yaniris and older brother Nicholas all made a permanent move to Fontalis. The Plumeri were one of three major patrician families - along with the Manli, the Fabi, and the Aemili that became the first wave of colonists to Fontalis. They all had an exemplary record of successful Starfleet service in the highest offices extending back at least to the early part of the 22nd century. Several ancestors were Federation consuls and then diplomats successively, and his great-grandfather, Mario Barbatus Plumeri, had been a Federation ambassador to the Caitian Empire in the 2280’s. His own family history had always been impressed upon him by his grandmother and his father. At the time that Matthew’s parents decided to leave Earth, the Plumeri’s were probably the most prominent branch of the family in the region, at least in the hindsight of the historians, who have only glowing reports of his family and his great-grandfather’s and grandfather’s career. So, there was and still is a lot of pressure on him to carry on the family name. Settle down and have a family and be just like all the other Plumeri family males.

Matthew is the second oldest son of Carl Plumeri, Professor of Social and Cultural Literature and Federation provisional diplomat to the Fontalan government. His older brother, Nicholas Plumeri, and a friend since boyhood,Anthony Laelius, serve in the Starfleet Marine Corps, both of whom were inspirational and motivational for Matthew to join Starfleet as well. There is no better way to see the universe than in Starfleet.

Matthew studied at some of the better educational institutions, and his parents were insistent that he learn about the local history of Fontalis and not just his own history. This has inspired him to become the man he is today. Driven and passionate about not just the past, but about the present and the future
